College of Professional Schools

Dean, Aron Temkin

The College of Professional Schools covers a unique breadth of fields including accounting, management, computing, cyber defense, nursing, engineering, construction, and architecture. These programs are conducted by faculty in the School of Architecture and Art, the School of Business, the School of Cybersecurity, Data Science, and Computing, the David Crawford School of Engineering, and the School of Nursing.

Across these disciplines students and faculty are engaged in teaching and learning processes that combine strong conceptual foundations with hands-on practice. Our engaged spirit of service combines with a willingness to collaborate that is necessary for tackling real-world challenges. When this is combined with the leadership focus of the university, we position our students to engage the problems of our era and build the industries, systems, processes, machines and structures that are required of the next century.

Mission
The College of Professional Schools is committed to educating students in the tradition of university founder Capt. Alden Partridge. By providing our students the means, motivation, confidence and empathy to engage the problems of today, we educate disciplined and innovative thinkers inspired to create the industries, systems, processes, machines and structures that solve the challenges of tomorrow.
